weekend distraction: graphic tees

On August 25, 2013 by theseventhsphinx

It is rare that there is a graphic tee I would consider wearing. Some I can like on others but it’s not quite my style – the graphic distracts from the play of color and texture, which is so much more compelling to me.

This week, though, I’ve seen a few that have me reconsidering.

First and most seriously under consideration is the Kiss kiss tee from the J Crew Fall ’13 season. Simple text on one of my favorite things: a white shirt. AND words and kisses are two more of my favorite things (you may remember that I love kisses). I am not in the habit of buying expensive t-shirts…or really t-shirts at all, but maybe I will make an exception here.

Next is this astrology tee from LuckyBrand, which I just happened to see on a hunt for a blazer. I’m not a devotee of astrology but I do like the symbols associated with and the ancient concepts behind it. I am consistently interested in complex symbolic systems but more to the point, the image is cool to me. Also to the point, the cotton they use is incredibly soft and thin.
